15 Architecture and Interior Design Trends That Not Everyone Likes
Some modern trends in construction or interior design, do not arouse admiration. They are extremely misguided and impractical. Often make staying in your own home ceases to be comfortable.
#1 Lack of Handrails
Stairs without handrails are just asking for someone to finally fall off them and hurt himself.
#2 Window to Window
Dense cabinetry and ill-considered designs. Unacceptable are windows that look directly into a neighbor’s bedroom or shaded balconies that even touch the next building.
#3 Deceiving Balconies
Some French balconies are actually just a railing and decoration.
#4 Shelves Instead of Cabinets
Many people replace kitchen cabinets with open shelves. Then a lot more dust, dirt and pet hair collects on the exposed appliances.
#5 No Partitions
Completely open floors with no separate rooms. It’s so homey open space 😉 .
#6 No Utility Room
No storage space for brushes, vacuum cleaners or clothes dryer. You never know where to hide such unsightly items.
#7 Bathroom with Bedroom
The concept of an open bathroom connected to the bedroom is not a hit. A person who is in the sanitary area will never feel comfortable while performing hygienic activities.
#8 Low Cabinets in Kitchen
Kitchen cabinets that don’t reach all the way to the ceiling. In the kitchen, every space is valuable, and the empty space above the cabinets is just asking to be used.
#9 Exposed Garage
A huge garage at the front of the house, which disfigures the entire facade and draws attention away from the entrance and door.
#10 Narrow Kitchen
Kitchen arranged in a narrow room. It’s hard to move around in it, and no one will be able to walk through once the refrigerator is open.
#11 All in White
Fashion for furniture, accessories and walls in white or gray. Minimalism rules and it is rare to find items in intense colors.
#12 Concrete Everywhere
Concrete walls and decor elements. They are very uncomfortable and give the impression that the interior is unfinished.
#13 Painted Bricks
Bricks painted in different colors and covering nice wooden floors with carpets.
#14 Unshaped Bathtub
You can’t get comfortable in a completely straight bathtub. Profiled tubs with one side more slanted are definitely better.
#15 Glazed Shower Enclosures
Fully glazed shower enclosures that look great, but are very difficult to keep clean.
